There are people all over the world who want what you write about. They live, eat and breathe for what you have to say.
The problem is most just don’t know you exist yet.
But they are going to be unbelievably happy when they finally find you.
So what do you have to do to make it easy for them to find you without going absolutely crazy managing the task?
We know you’ve tried your best. You’ve probably installed Yoast and are filling out the boxes. You probably are putting the keywords in your title and description and you’re still not getting traffic from the search engines. And it’s painful to try.
That’s what ever Blogger has had to deal with it. It’s common to do all that and still not get anywhere. But don’t feel badly because what you’re doing is great.
The only thing is . . . it’s only 10% of what you need to do. The heavy lifting is done with the structure, the plan and the execution.
That’s what the 21 Day SEO Challenge is. It’s the plan, the crafting of the plan and the execution of the plan. (If you came here for that and are ready to get started, click here)
What You’ll Learn
Let’s build a site that the search engines want to bring back as a result. A lot of SEO is not keywords and meta-descriptions but how you set-up your blog posts. Let’s talk about creating an environment where every site visitor adds to your relevance.
And while keywords can suck the life out of a fun blog post, they can be the life of the party, too. They can open your eyes to so many things. They can teach you fun things about your audience and their preconceived notions. And they’ll give you an endless stream of things to write about, because there’s nothing better than writing for readers.
Writing without readers creates burnout.
But not every page, not every post, not every sentence needs to be written with SEO in mind. There’s a strategy and a plan that will become 2nd nature.
And will bring you a new joy, a new audience and new zest for your blog.
